    Hi everyone!

    I start my second year of college in six weeks, and I am very excited.
    The thing is, I don’t want to make the same mistakes I made my first year.
    If you have any tips, tricks or suggestions, PLEASE leave them in the comment section.
    The girl could use them. Thanks!

    • Hope your second year of college goes well @qveenyoshii, I’m sure you will be successful no matter what happens, be positive and follow your dreams, you will be OK, inbox me anytime if you want to chat or vent about anything, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)

    • I think the best thing is to set yourself a realistic schedule! I have weekly study sessions with my friends, and even if an assignment isn’t due soon I always try work towards it and get little bits of it done so when it’s time to start it I’m not stressed! Also if you have a calendar hang it up and use it! Seeing things like deadlines visually really puts it in to perspective how much time you have to do things :) All in all enjoy your time, I’m sure you’re going to do great!!

    • thank you so much for the tips! my friends and i wanted to try the weekly study sessions out this semester, so it’s in the plans. this is great advice, thanks again! :)

    • @qveenyoshii I’m not sure if college there is the same as university here. Either way my advice is go to every class if you can. Always take a bunch of notes, even the tiniest thing. At home re-read them and use a highlighter. That will be your guardian angel to study for tests. Same with photocopies if your teachers prove you with them. For books since they are experience there are websites *cough pretend I never said this* where you can find college books.
      In terms of studying discipline, study a bit every single day, from 1 hour to 2 if possible. That way you won’t feel as drained when studying the day before the test since you’ll already have an idea of what you need to know.
      And finally, some teachers in the end of the class say what comes in the test. Try to pay attention to it.
      I hope i helped ^-^

    • thank you so much for your great advice :)

    • Study group, organization (digital or paper), and a will to not procrastinate (study first, then party). Those are the foundations of success. Good luck. Oh, and chocolate. Keep chocolate and peanut butter, jam and a loaf of bread handy.
